We can redefine business to be about more than just profit. I am a big believer in the triple-bottom-line, and it makes long-term economic sense. We discuss this in the classroom, and I hope our work can help students be change agents in the business world.
Teaching at The School of Business allows me to impart upon students the wisdom of my mistakes, and for them to more quickly learn the skills that make people in the supply chain industry more successful. I immediately take a great interest in my students’ long term success.
Redefining business means redefining capitalism. I’m a fan of using markets to drive behavior, we just have to be so much more intentional about which behavior we wish to motivate. There’s no time left to lose on this since business is the most powerful lever in society for improving social and environmental conditions.
